Dead cells disrupt how immune cells respond to wounds and patrol for infection

from University of Sheffield via ScienceDaily

Immune cells prioritize the clearance of dead cells overriding their normal migration to sites of injury. A research paves the way for new therapies to manipulate how white blood cells get to and are kept at sites of injuries during healing. The study, led by scientists at the University of Sheffield, revealed that cells, which are programmed to die — a process known as apoptosis — can disrupt the normal function of immune cells, called macrophages. This can impact on how well they respond to wounds and patrol the body to seek out infection. more
